Being compliant with Amazon’s Operating Agreement for their affiliate program (Amazon Associates) is really important to us here at Geniuslink (and we write about it a fair amount!).
Avoiding being the subject of an audit by the Amazon Associates compliance team is your best bet, but if you unfortunately get the fabled email letting you know your account is in jeopardy, then you’ve got your work cut out for you. However, before you dive in, we’d encourage you to give the entertaining and highly educational post that Doug Cunnington, of Niche Site Project, wrote about his experience below (lightly edited).
As we’ve seen a number of these audits over the years I’ve interjected some commentary to Doug’s adventure in the post below (with this formatting).
Good luck and enjoy!
